So help me out will ya?
Here’s the story, I was playing nice and comfy the other day and after half a day of racing my controller, an XBox One one, connected via USB, just suddenly stopped working, and overheating, for those who know it or have one, it got hot in a spot slightly above that port at the bottom of it where you plug the keyboard.
So I did what any sensible person would do, and took it apart to poke at it, don’t worry, I’m fairly good with electronics, anyway, I managed to find the culprit…sss
Given the size of these parts is quite hard for me to pinpoint with my finger which one of these f$%&ers is causing problems, the two fellas down there are capacitors which are the ones I feel heating up(the bottom one more than the other), which would be the usual culprits, but the big arrow there points to an IC that shows signs of melted plastic, and in fact the internal frame has a nasty(by its size) melted spot that kinda fits that part.
So I don’t know what to do, if the IC is busted I’ll have to get a new controller(that, I can’t), and if it’s the capacitors, I’m not too confident in removing either of them since they regulate power, I know it can work without them, but I’m not sure if it would actually solve anything.
Would anyone have a suggestion on what to do? I really can’t buy a new one, and I just bought The Surge
By the way, I’ve never seen a topic like this, so I don’t know if it’s out of place, so feel free to tell me if it’s not OK to have it here.
